This time in Russia saw many of the upper classes leaving their luxurious homes to go to the factories and teach the less fortunate, for which efforts they were tortured, often to the point of insanity or death.

This is Book 4 in a new series of Russian language textbooks that began with Russian Through Propaganda. This volume continues with in-depth coverage of intermediate to advanced grammar, with... More > particular emphasis on word formation: how Russian takes simple roots and, with prefixes and suffixes, builds more nouns, verbs, and adjectives from them.
